generally take an interest in them. Requests for adminship tend to
involve only a very small subset of the community, who, fortunately, are
usually considered sane (editcountitis notwithstanding); requests for
confirmation will have all the problems of RfA, with the added drawback
of being inhabited by trolls and idiots who are too concerned with
advancing their own agendas to bother learning what admins do and why.
Why are you bringing vote stacking into this? That's a completely different issue.
This is not about vote stacking.
I am not the only person who has noticed that, in your
brief time on
this list, you have rarely posted anything that could not be considered
"nonsense". I would like to suggest you spend more time on Wikipedia,
attempting to learn what we're about and how we work, before you try to
instruct the Wikipedia Grannies in advanced egg-sucking procedures. The
views of someone ignorant of Wikipedia procedures can be useful, at
times; fresh eyes, etc., but at others it's damned annoying to see
someone who doesn't know what he's talking about attempt to lecture us.
Please, give it a rest, and fill your head instead of this list.
Thank you for your kind suggestions. You'll have to excuse me as I ignore them.
